Editing your Google Slides presentation.
Welcome back. 0:00 Let's jump into the tools you have available to create 0:02 an excellent presentation. 0:05 First, your presentation is going to need slides. 0:08 So let's chat a bit about how you can organize your slides. 0:11 You can add a slide matching the type you're currently viewing 0:16 by clicking the plus button here. 0:20 Or you can choose the drop-down to pick a different slide type. 0:23 You can delete a slide by right-clicking on it's image and 0:30 choosing Delete, or by pressing the Delete key on your keyboard. 0:35 Sometimes you may have slides with similar layouts. 0:41 This is a great time to use the duplicate ability. 0:44 Select the slide you want to duplicate, right click on it, and 0:48 select Duplicate slide. 0:53 To reorganize the order of your slides, you can drag slides to change their order. 0:57 Nice work. 1:07 Now let's jump into the specific tools you have available to add design elements or 1:09 content to each slide. 1:14 Text is a big part of a presentation. 1:16 You can click into the text boxes on slides that have them built in. 1:20 Or use the text box tool to create a text box of your own. 1:28 Shapes are a great way to help get ideas across visually. 1:39 There are a multitude of shapes to choose from, so take a minute to explore and 1:44 see what shapes call to you. 1:48 Pro tip, hold down the Shift key when 1:52 creating a new shape to help keep its proportions. 1:56 The next tool you have available is the line tool. 2:04 This doesn't just create straight lines, but 2:08 can also create lines with arrows to connect information. 2:11 Combining shapes and lines gives you the ability 2:16 to create diagrams in your presentations, too. 2:20 Under Insert, you can also add tables, charts, diagrams, and word art. 2:25 Lastly, let's talk about media. 2:33 You can add audio, video, and images to your slides, too. 2:36 Make sure to check your media before you present for blurriness and sound quality. 2:43 There's nothing worse than finding a great visual that no one can see or 2:50 understand when you present. 2:56 Check by uploading to a slide, 2:58 Resizing the media to be the height and width that you want. 3:05 And then viewing it in presentation mode to see if the audience will be able to 3:13 view it easily. 3:18 With the knowledge of the tools available to you under your belt, think about which 3:20 will help show off your information and be a pleasant experience for your audience. 3:25 Next, we'll jump into how you can collaborate and share your presentation. 3:30 See you there. 3:35
